For a while, I’ve been wondering how did good old O2 became fashionable in the beauty industry when you can just drink plenty of water. You see labels like “oxygenated” and “oxygen-infused” everywhere these days. I’m like, how do they put a gaseous substance into a product? And even if they did, how do we know if the oxygen remains stable for weeks or even months on store shelves? Some of you smartypants already know that unstable oxygen is simply free radicals, the #1 cause of skin aging. With all these questions in my head, I did the natural thing I do: Google for hours before I make some expensive purchase … and this is what I learned with my healthy dose of skepticism.
As promised, here’s a not-so-long post on my 100% natural skincare regimen before I go to bed. I’ve followed some of these steps for a long time, but have only incorporated these oils into my routine about a month ago. Technically, I use everything here for both day and night, but for night I’ve now excluded all commercial products and go all natural to reduce the chances of getting any adverse skin reactions while I sleep.

As promised, here are the cosmetic ingredients that can do more damage than they work on your skin.
